HC Deb 24 May 1976 vol 912 c50W
Mr. Chanson

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what arrangements he will make so as adequately to inform the relevant local authorities and Members of Parliament concerned, in cases where he is proposing to make a land acquisition and management scheme under the Community Land Act; and if he will place a copy of any such scheme in the Library.

Mr. Guy Barnett

All such LAMS were made by 6th April, by which time the local authorities concerned had each been informed by my right hon. Friend the Minister for Planning and Local Government. Copies are already in the Library as promised.—[Vol. 908, c.534.]

Mr. Rossi

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if it is his policy that (a) an inspector reporting on a public inquiry and (b) he himself, when giving a planning decision of any kind, should take into account the consideration that the proposed acquisition or use of land would or might be illegal unless subsequently authorised by specific legislation.

Mr. Guy Barnett

Whenever planning permission is granted by the Secretary of State or by an inspector under delegated powers the decision letter states clearly that it does not convey any approval or consent which may be required under any enactment, byelaw, Order or Regulation other than Section 23 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1971.
